As what we once knew as normal life slips ever further behind in our collective rear view mirror and the evening news might have been written by some ghastly chimaera of Orwell and Aldous Huxley possibly with a soupçon of Kafka thrown in, then comfort of a kind (not a terribly comforting kind) may be found in Revelations, the last book in the Bible, and the one which used to seem to have been written by a paranoid religious maniac during a particularly heavy acid trip, but nowadays seems fairly prescient.
One of the many things which would combine to make life a misery were the four horsemen of the apocalypse: The Antichrist, War, Famine & Pestilence.
And so it is as we approach the end of times, for Western Civilization at least, that their precise form is becoming clear.
- The Antichrist – wokeism is eating away at our culture from the inside having infiltrated all the most influential institutions
- War – that will be the Chinese push for global dominance by fair means or foul, (clue: mostly the latter)
- Famine – will be the poverty and misery unleashed on the world by greenist policies founded in ignorance and cynicism
- Pestilence – the Covid crisis is rapidly denormalising sacred freedoms
I don’t as a rule place an enormous amount of faith in biblical predictions; but Revelations is hurtling towards us and it might be too late to stop it.
PS. it will be obvious by the way that all four of these are due to the incompetence of Governments, and the blame is partly ours for not rising sooner.
